The Lone Star College-Tomball Community Library is hosting a logo design opportunity open to all Tomball residents for the community’s new and upcoming Tomball Innovation Lab. Celebrating the development of the Innovation Lab, contestants of all ages are welcome to submit artwork for a logo that embraces the lab’s goal of being “Your Destination for Innovation Experience.” The design submissions will open Sunday, September 8th through Friday, November 8th, 2019.
The Tomball Innovation Lab is a developing maker lab at LSC-Tomball Community Library. The Tomball Innovation Lab will serve as a public space offering advanced technologies designed for users to create and produce projects. It will facilitate user learning and acquisition of knowledge through experiences. Starter equipment for the lab includes a 3D printer, Computer Numerical Control machines such as a laser cutter, robotics and coding tools to develop computational thinking and logic. The Innovation Lab will also feature Oculus Go virtual reality headsets to expose and inspire new experiences. As the lab grows, additional tools will be added, guided by community input.
HCPL, Lone Star College-Tomball, and Harris County Precinct 4 began with the idea to provide maker-based equipment and resources in response to consistent requests from library customers. HCA-Houston Healthcare Tomball, Greater Tomball Area Chamber of Commerce, City of Tomball, Tomball ISD and Tomball Economic Development Corporation joined as partners.
The importance of this collaborative initiative is emphasized by Dr. Martha Salazar-Zamora of Tomball ISD, Superintendent of Schools: “Tomball ISD values the well-established partnership that we have with Lone Star College-Tomball and Harris County Public Library. This is another example of how our organizations can work together to better the community in which we live. The Innovation Lab will be a place where students and teachers can work together and foster their appreciation of learning through doing. We look forward to the many opportunities that this lab will bring!”
Supporting the Innovation Lab, Eric Evans, CEO of HCA Houston Healthcare Tomball, adds that: “HCA Houston Healthcare Tomball is honored to support the Community Innovation Lab at the Lone Star College Tomball Community Library. The Innovation Lab will enhance our community by providing a center for creative minds to bring to life their chosen craft. We look forward to the collaboration with LSC-Tomball, Harris County Public Library, Harris County Precinct 4, and the business community.”
The logo design opportunity encourages further community collaboration in the project and generates community interest and engagement. “We hope that this design opportunity helps to showcase the artistic talent of our Tomball community and prompts them to use the Innovation Lab for their future creative endeavors,” says Janna Hoglund, Director of LSC-Tomball Community Library.
The selected logo will be used for all Innovation Lab communications and branding. The Logo and selected designer will be announced in December and recognized at the Grand Opening ceremony of the Tomball Innovation Lab, slated for early 2020.
